>> do you see much ticket splitting? a vote for obama or romney and then vote for republican or democrat for the senate? >> i think we are a more polarized nation. >> ticket splitting would be good because there is an interesting theory that it would be helpful to romney if the democrats kept control of the senate by a vote or two because it would allow romney to tell the crazies in his own party that i have to make a deal with the democrats. >> well -- >> back at bain? >> i'm saying, if elected, it might not be a tragedy. >> the republicans are not only going to keep the house, and they all will keep most of their majority. this is one place where redistricting and a late money from super pacs has made a difference. >> crystal ball, colby. >> i see barack obama -- i talked to a former republican chairman, could judiciously looks at the numbers, and i looked at his numbers, i see barack obama winning electoral college by 286 votes. >> could it be possible for him to win the electoral college and lose the popular vote? >> i understand it is mathematically possible. >> how likely is it? >>
at the polls right now, obama has got it. >> did romney have momentum or was that just republican spin? >> he did have momentum after the first debate -- >> we have had a three since then -- >> what obama was never able to recapture the lead. >> i cannot say with certainty that there was momentum, no momentum. i cannot tell. you look at the polls hour after hour and you get a sense that this thing is very tight, even when you go to some of the battle ground states. >> yes, the first debate made an enormous difference in the campaign. it allowed mitt romney to reintroduce himself with no opposition on the part of the president as the moderate massachusetts reasonable mitt. gone was the saber-rattling mitt, keep out the foreigners mitt, round up the suspects mitt and send them to practice -- [laughter] he became reasonable, intelligent, poised, forget the cayman islands and the swiss bank accounts. frank bruni of "the new york times" made a telling point -- the first debate was important because it may president obama in the next two debates more truculent than is ordinarily his norm, and he ov

[ charlie ] try zinc free super polig
republicans in the electorate, then that's probably enough to save obama, even if he loses independents by a dozen points. >> well, where-- >> it's all in the makeup. >> paul: where do you think the recognizance electorate is going to turn out? somewhere maybe in between 2004 and 2008? and that would, i guess, make it very close. >> our last poll shows a 4.democratic margin of 35 democrat, 31 republicans. >> so that's right way, halfway between 2004 and 8. >> exactly. but frankly, paul, nobody knows, with 100% assurance exactly what this electorate is going to look like on tuesday, and if anybody tells you they do, they're lying. >> paul: okay. now the other big discrepancy in the polls is the difference between the national surveys, which have obama and romney very, very close to tied and the state swing state polls, which have, except for north carolina and florida, basically have the two candidates either tied, but obama having a one, two or more point lead, as many as five in some state polls, lead over romney. why the discrepancy between the national survey and the state polls? >>
today president obama and republican candidate mitt romney used the numbers to their favor. >> reporter: president obama and mitt romney see one number in two very different ways. just listen to their supporters chants. >> four more years, four more years, four more years. >> four more day, four more days, four more days. >> reporter: president obama and his running mate vice president joe biden focused on new jobs added to the economy. >> this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> we created 5.4 million new sector jobs. >> reporter: there are now more workers in america than there were when the president took office in january of 2009. but that includes an increase in the number of people who can only find part time work. mitt romney says look at a different number. >> today we learned that it's actually 7.9% and that's 9 million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> reporter: hiring has barely kept up, and more than 10 million people can't find a job. p
, in springfield, ohio when president obama said thiskr romney. listen. >> at the time the republican congress, senate candidate by the name of mitt romney -- no -- voting is the best revenge. >> reporter: voting is best revenge. his campaign was asked about that. they said what he was talking about is the best way to battle back against the illusion and delusion that mitt romney is putting out there but he did give romney a gift to put an ad. what is the president really talking about here? what does he want people to vote for? giving romney to contrast himself with the president. listen. >> yesterday the president said something you may have heard by now that i think surprised a lot of people, speaking to an audience, he said voting is the best revenge. he told his supporters, voting for revenge, vote for revenge? let me tell you what i would like to tell you. vote for love of country. >> we talk a lot about early voting here on the campaign trail and this election, it's particularly important in colorado where 50% of people have already cast their ballots. here is the way it's broken down.
to colorado secretary of state, republicans have the edge in early voting and president obama has lost his advantage, a big advantage with independent voters. so really i think it could be safe to say that the only poll that is going to matter now is the one that's taken on tuesday night. >> gregg: well said. john roberts, great reporting as always. thanks so much. >> thanks. >> heather: president obama kick off a packed campaign schedule in the key battle ground states of ohio and wisconsin, taking jabs at governor remain knee and urging supporters to get out and vote. the president now enroute to iowa. that's where he's expected to speak at a star studded campaign event. chief white house correspondent ed henry is traveling with the president and just landed and us live on the phone. >> he's going to have john cougar mellencamp trying to kick off a star studded weekend. all kinds of celebrities. a concert rally in the next couple of days with jz, bruce springstein. they're really trying to get people out to the polls. a lot of these states have early voting like where he was earlier toda
about statement president obama made this year? what did the president say that republicans then lied about, day in and day out? and even devoted one night of their convention to lying about? this. this was the most lied about thing president obama said this year. >> if you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. there was a great teacher somewhere in your life. somebody helped to create this unbelievable american system that we have that allowed you to thrive. somebody invested in roads and bridges. if you got a business, you didn't build that. somebody else made that happen. the internet didn't get invented on its own. government research created the internet so that all the companies could make money off the internet. the point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together. there are some things just like fighting fires we don't do on our own. so we say to ourselves, every since the founding of this country, you know what? there's some things we do better together. >> that is the full versio
by the romney and obama campaigns. republicans are emphasizing the increase in the unemployment rate from 7.9% to 7.8%. supporters of the president point out 171,000 jobs were created during the month, more than economists projected. i had a chance to talk about the impact of the numbers with the former chairman of the president's council of economic advisers. he's now a professor of economics at chicago's booth school of business. i asked him if he agreed with mitt romney's assessment that the, quote, increase in the unemployment rate is a sad reminder that the economy is at a virtual standstill. >> i don't think so. the last month, the unemployment rate came down three ticks. and the romney campaign complained that we hadn't created more jobs. this month, the number of jobs created was 30%, 40% higher than expected and was fairly strong. and then they criticize that the unemployment rate ticked up one tenth. it's the last number before the election, so i think both sides are going to see, try to go through and interpret what it means. i think overall, most economists view it as a fairly s
for cancer. the republicans put it in this mess. obama is slowly getting us out. lou: doesn't make you feel cloudy to know that he shar hisvelocity? >> all i know is that the financial times called america the greatest i the world right now. they have done the best of all the countries. america is the bright spot. americans think that. >> unfortunately, lou, that romney has not let us know how he can create a better than transamerica. unfortunately, you have some people that are not going to vote conscience. they are going to vote color. some blacks are wednesday o protest because this president has not been good for us be one well, it looks it's pretty clear. it wasn't going to be a tight election. i'm not re we should be so confident exactly what demographic we are talking
. that is a swing of 2,603,000 away from the democrats in toward the republicans. guess what, obama's margin was 262,000 in no way, most of it fueled by a huge turnout in early voting, and that he lost the election day voting to make romney. so this is not a good sign commend i have been watching this trend for a week. the margins are gettg bigger. on tuesday it was 50 some odd thousand. now it is larger than what obama won the state by a in 2008. this is a bad sign for president obama, and we see it reflected in the polls as well. if you take a look, allup says 15 percent of the people had ved early. they were breaking for romney by 52-46. this week to reports 19 peent of those surveyed said they had voted. a break for romney y 50-43. obama won the early vote last time around, according to puke, by 19 points or was winning at this point by 19 points and now he's losing it by seven. that is more than enough to flip the election lou: two thin, if we can go back to your bard, immediately apparent command one is that there is a 5-4 margin if i read correctly, democrats over republicans in the early vo
obama won the state of florida and the presidency. oops. last year florida's new republican governor rick scott decided he was not going to make that mistake again. rather than expanding voting, the new one decided he would cut the days for early voting almost in half in order to make voting harder. look. at least that's how it works. long, long, long lines for early voting in polls places across florida except this year it's long lines with no relief in sight. we have been getting pictures ever since early voting started in the state. this is how democracy works in florida this year. look at this. get in line. wait and wait. wait an hour. wait four hours. wait five hours. yesterday florida democrats and the nonpartisan group the league of women voters asked the governor to do something about the long lines. they asked him to add a day of voting to open the polls on the last sunday before the election when many african-americans usually plan to car pool after church to go vote. the governor said no. florida's governor said, "early voting will end on saturday night, but i want everybo
. it is now down to the finish line today president obama and republican candidate mitt romney used the numbers to their favor. >> reporter: president obama and mitt romney see one number in two very different ways. just listen to their supporters chants. >> four more years, four more years, four more years. >> four more day, four more days, four more days. >> reporter: president obama and his running mate vice president joe biden focused on new jobs added to the economy. >> this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> we created 5.4 million new sector jobs. >> reporter: there are now more workers in america than there were when the president took office in january of 2009. but that includes an increase in the number of people who can only find part time work. mitt romney says look at a different number. >> today we learned that it's actually 7.9% and that's 9 million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> reporter: hiring has barely kept up, and more th
cincinnati, 52% for the republican ticket, 47% for president obama. mitt romney -- it's a classic swing state, both campaigns essentially getting what they need where they need it. who can turn out the vote. >> and turn out the vote comes down to the ground game and they are saying we have a better ground game, more people. >> i see the president has a head start in early voting and that's important because his coalition includes college students and african-americans, people less reliable to turn out on election day, so that head start helps the democrats and president there. i was here four years ago. i like to retrace my steps to see how it feels now compared to then. it was clear john mccain was toast and the president was going to carry ohio. it's a lot different this year because the romney campaign have enough to get over the top, that's the question we'll answer in the next hundred hours or so, but the intensity at the romney campaign was off the charts. governor romney's expecting some 30,000 people in ohio tonight not that the ohio people aren't working hard, too. they have a very i

. in effect, what he would do is what the republicans have done to president obama. every action creates an equal and opposite reaction. that's what promised by the democrats. that cycle of insightment that spirals on. >> i hope it gets solved. we'll talk more about the fiscal cliff and why the politicians aren't talking about it the way we are. we'll talk to smart people about it.

house not winning ohio. there is a deep republican tradition in this state. the fact that it's an obama fire wall is what is remarkable. this is a state that mitt romney could do well. he should do well. running the obama's campaign core strategy appealing to middle class voters, working class whites in this state makes a big difference when it comes to ground game and that critical early voting. mitt romney has had a real problem connecting to those folks. >> who is he leading with in ohio? >> president obama is leading with women. he's leading with centrist business 0 points. losing independents by two points. losing white men by a considerable margin. leading with folks who make undered 50 e$50,000 a year. so the national themes are evident here in ohio. >> when you say independents and centrists, you're describing them as two separate things. a lot of viewers think independents means centrists. >> in the past, they have. one of the fascinating things about this election, the impact of the tea party on independent voters, it moved them to the right. so you see independents edging tow
obama care hurts seniors by slashing medicare. redistricting will have a big impact helping republicans. >> for the most part, republicans, because they made such overwhelming gains not only in congress, but in state legislatures last year, they were able to control the redistricting process in a lot of key states. for example, north carolina where democrats will probably lose a couple seats this cycle. >> reporter: gop gains look likely in districts from north carolina to arkansas among others. in fact, they even put traditional blue states like rhode island and massachusetts into play. democrats are trying hard to unseat gop incumbents in blue states like california, new york, and illinois. and could see gains in maryland and florida. so why do these house races matter? members of congress will have to make big decisions in the coming months. chief among them, reaching a deal to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff, a series of tax increases and spending cuts set to take effect next year. >> the decisions confronting congress over the next four months are bigger than i think most of us ha
the day scaring the held out of republicans by praising president obama. >> but everyone's asking how was this storm going to affect the election? and i think it's given obama momentum. i mean, obviously he didn't plan it. they'll try to blame it on him, of course. but it's because of how he's handled it. he approached it so differently than bush. he showed up. >>> thanks for watching today. the next hour of "cnn saturday morning" starts right now. from the cnn center, this is "cnn saturday morning." good morning, everyone. i'm randi kaye. glad you're with us. president obama and governor romney focus on the swing states as both candidates make their final push. in the aftermath of super storm sandy, gas rationing starts in new jersey today in an effort to cut down on those long lines at the gas station. plus, during this tragedy, a man has become a much-needed angel to one new jersey community. >>> just three days to go until election day and the presidential candidates are launching a weekend battleground blitz to win over undecided voters. today, president obama campaigns in ohio,
republican man talking about rape. >> you have to look at the trend of polls. six months ago obama campaign was touting 20% of gender gap that they have of women. now he only has 8% aboveomne thenou he to look what happened in 2008. obama got 56% of the women. now he's only getting 50. there's a loss in enthusiasm among women. you really have to look at the trend of the polls. >> loss as compared to four years ago but as erin pointed out the last few comments have come from republican candidates that have really energized the discussion about women's reproductive rights. are those, murdoch, et ceta responsible for this recent jump in the gender gap in obama's favor? >> i don't think so at all. more liberal women are paying attention to what murdoch was saying. if you hold all republicans accountable then old democrats accountable for what kirsetn simens say that stay at home wives were leeching off of their husbands which is unacceptable f. we're going to hold that to standards we can point out owl kinds of people in democrats or republicans. >> let's go deeper in women in swing states that

on the republican side says governor romney is going to win and everybody on president obama's side says he is going to win. how do you measure it tonight? >> i mean you know obviously, i guess an obama rally you would feel differently. at this rally it seems like he has enormous enthusiasm. this has the feeling of a winning campaign. the enthusiasm here tonight was tremendous. if this s a is swing state i feel good about it even if the polls about even and even if obama has a lead of one or two i suspect the undecided votes are going to go to mitt romney. i have a pretty good feeling about ohio. and if he wins ohio, i think he wins and maybe president obama could feel the same way about it. this is probably the key state. >> greta: why do you all leave, ohio, and spread out across the country? why don't you all just stay in ohio if that is so important, got to get every vote there. >> because you got to make sure you win the others too. you have to make sure you win, virginia, and win colorado and win wisconsin and you win florida. florida you can't take for granted. florida is just as critical. ma
the right to vote. the obama campaign thanks the republican governor when he did that and then with a significant boost from early voting, democrat barack obama won the state of florida and he won the presidency. oops. last year florida's new republican governor, governor rick scott, decided he was not going to make that mistake again. rather than expand opportunities for voting the way florida's two previous republican governors had done, the new one, republican governor rick scott, decided he would cut the days for early voting almost in half in order to make voting harder. look. at least that's how it works. tah-dah! long, long, long lines for early voting in polling places across florida. except this year it's long lines with no relief in sight. we have been getting pictures like this from voters who live in florida emp since early voting started in the state. this is how democracy works in florida this year. look at this. get in line. wait and wait. wait an hour. wait four hours. wait five hours. more. yesterday florida democrats and the nonpartisan group the

,000 vote flip which is the margin by which obama won ohio in 2008. secondly, ohio is a republican state. 20 of the last 24 years we had republican governors. the legislature is overwhelmingly republican. every elected member of the supreme court of ohio is republican. 75% of elected officials in 88 counties are republicans. and thirdly, by independent voting measures, 10% to 15% of independent voters in ohio are going to vote for mitt romney. and also the catholic church when i go to saint sin vent in kenwood in since is national the minister is telling us vote for religious freedom. vote for the biblical definition of marriage. vote for life. there is half a million catholics energized in south, ohio, to pull the lever for mitt romney. mitt romney will win, ohio, and is going to win ohio easily. >> sean: wisconsin? >> wisconsin will go for romney because what walker did and what ryan did made it possible for mitt romney to win wisconsin. let's face it, tonight in westchester, 30,000 people came to butler county, ohio, the most important county and the most important state in the the union
